In spite of the turbulent crypto market, the global Forex broker OctaFX recently decided to raise the leverage ratio of its cryptocurrency pairs from 1:10 to 1:25. This generous upgrade is a direct result of clear customer sentiment.

wo vivid and steep bitcoin corrections recently made the whole altcoin market plummet right down with it. Nevertheless, at the beginning of May, the hopes were still high after bitcoin had reached its new all-time high of over 60,000 USD in mid-April 2021.

All parties involved consider the first collapse from mid-May onwards as the harshest market crash since the infamous March 2020 fallout. Although the second correction also claimed many trading casualties, it was the first one that caught almost everybody off-guard. At the time of this writing, bitcoin is hovering around 36,000 USD.

Allegedly, insiders floated around Reddit and several other internet forums days before the crash began, in which they sought to make a credible case for an orchestrated market manipulation soon to shake retail investors and traders out of their positions, active orders, or spot bags. As a result of this disruption, many lost tremendous amounts of money, and the market’s fear index had reached record highs.

Tech-millionaire Elon Musk garners some love and much hate as he tweets along, making the public impression of having complete control over the crypto sphere, as well as bitcoin as its prime currency. Time will tell if this simple explanation amounts to anything. Perhaps, it is instead a collective effort of anonymous whales and institutional players, trying to salvage the best market conditions to position themselves long-term in the new infrastructure of future finance to come.
